Spike — A Free Video Conferencing Solution for Everyone

Video Conferencing

As the world begins another week of lockdown, millions more people are being asked to study, work, and play at home. The situation today is far from ideal, and the longer restrictions are in place, the more stir crazy everyone is likely to get. We crave social contact and face-to-face interaction. We are, after all, only human.


While social distancing measures might be keeping us apart, Spike has been busy in the (virtual) lab whipping up something that’s designed to help bring us back together! We want to keep everyone connected with family, friends, and colleagues during these difficult times, and we’ve got just the thing to make it happen.


Say hello to the video conferencing solution from Spike. The quickest, easiest, and most secure multi-participant video and audio-conferencing tool around. It’s all completely free, unlimited, and guaranteed to keep you safe and secure at all times.  



Stay Connected with Video Conferencing Solutions for Home


Whether you need video conferencing solutions for your small business or to keep in touch with family, Spike has got exactly what you need. Our video conferencing solution is perfect for connecting multiple members of your team, so everyone is on the same page, despite being in different locations. The same is true if you want to connect with family or friends, just get everyone to jump on a video conferencing call and share the love.  


Our video conferencing solution is also perfect for education, and whether you’re holding online classes for your students or you need to bring together your peers to work together on a group project, connecting using Spike couldn’t be easier. Set up virtual classrooms, organize group brainstorming sessions, or just get together for after class drinks—just remember to stock up on ice first!
